Quail Creek State Park provides excellent year round camping and fishing. Add in picnics, and swimming, and you have an outdoor adventures dream spot! The park is easily accessible off of I-15 14 miles north of St. George City. Campsites are $15 per night.
Opened to the public as a state park in 1986.
This park was built to provide irrigation and culinary water to the St. George area. Quail Creek State Park is a hidden gem. Most of the water in the reservoir does not come from Quail Creek, but is diverted from the Virgin River. Two dams form the reservoir. The main dam is an earth-fill embankment dam.
The maximum depth of Quail Creek can reach 120 feet, so it is cold enough to sustain the stocked rainbow trout, bullhead catfish, and crappie. Largemouth bass, which are also stocked, and bluegill thrive in the warmer, upper layers of the reservoir. Quail Creek State Park is a fishing dream! Bring your boat and come out and catch early water everyday on this serene and beautiful lake. Skiing and wakeboarding are ideal on the pristine warm blue water.
Park Elevation: 3,300 feet Surface Water Acreage: 600
